MathSource Notebook Smith Normal Form Error  How to Correct?
Posted:

Hi
I am trying to do Rational Canonical Forms for matrices and there are no builtin things for this and Smith Normal Forms.
I want to calculate the rational canonical matrix and the P such that A = PRP^(1). This is a generalized variant of the Jordan Form (which I know how to do).
I found this notebook on Math Source from V6: http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/MathSource/7081/
It would be great if this package could show how the invariant canonical decomposition of [xI  A] was done (row and column operations).
When I download this and try using it, it does not work and I cannot figure out why.
Is there a way to correct this package so it works in Mathematica Version 9?
Did I miss some other command in Mathematica V9 that can do all of this stuff?
Thanks
